FTSE and CNBC have joined forces to launch the first blue-chip index for the Asia-Pacific region, including Japan. The FTSE CNBC Asia 100 Index launched this week and is designed to be used as the basis for structured products and exchange-traded funds (ETFs), or as a performance monitoring tool.
The index tracks the 100 largest stocks in the region, calculated by market capitalisation. It was created because CNBC saw the need for means of measuring equity performance in the region.
